PRIDe 2022

June 2022

Happy Pride month! The spirit of Pride continues to live on in our community’s resilience in the fight for equality and acceptance for all. The first Pride was a riot, a protest against police brutality.  Past is present. Courageous folks like Silvia Rivera and Marsha P. Johnson, two Black trans women stood up for what they knew was right. Black trans women have not only set the table, they have prepared the meal and served it.

 

In our fight for equality, we can never forget where we started, honoring those who came before by continuing the fight to achieve our rights and not just for some, but for ALL. This is the legacy of Pride. 

Springfield is celebrating its FIRST Pride March on June 4, 2022 from 10AM-5PM. We hope to see you there!

Starting on the campus of Springfield Technical Community College (1 Armory St Springfield, MA 01105) Landing at Court Square/City Hall (36 Court St Springfield, MA 01103) for parade reception and celebration!
